image descriptionTHANK YOU to everyone who donated funds through Give Local York on the first Friday in May. We sincerely appreciate all your support of our all-volunteer-run community cultural event.

York County’s annual day of giving is an opportunity to unite our community around causes in which we truly believe and help the nonprofit organizations that are important to us. Thank you to all who helped us raise more than $4,000 in 2021 by donating through Give Local York.

Donations are critical again this year as we incurred losses due to our 2020 and 2021 cancellations. In 2020, items such as printing, advertising, promotional items, storage locker rental, deposits, etc. were all paid well in advance. There was no ticket income, vendor fees, or food and beverage sales to cover those costs.  We did offer virtual content on social media all day on our festival date in 2020 and plan to do so again in 2021.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please let us know. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this post and for your support and generosity.

Please stay safe!
